JFSC may increase fees by 6% for the Insurance Business, Investment Business, and Funds [Inc.AIF and AIF.SB/ CoBO / QSMA]


The JFSC issued Consultation No. 3 2024 on 26 April 2024, for the following reasons:-

  • The JFSC annual fee consultations have followed a cycle that differs from sector to sector. This discrepancy has complicated the JFSC's financial forecasting and, as per the feedback received, has made it more complex for the industry to budget for the fees and manage client billing cycles.
  • Considering this, the JFSC proposes a change that will bring about significant benefits.
  • The JFSC,
    • Therefore, suggests aligning the annual fee periods with the calendar year. Starting in 2024, this adjustment will result in fee notices being pro-rated to 31 December 2024, providing a more straightforward and predictable financial planning process for all.
    • Propose to raise fee rates by 6%. This is below the December 2023 RPI of 7.5%. In accordance with Article 15(3)(ba) of the Commission Law, the JFSC confirms that no penalties have been received that would reduce these fees.
  • Welcomes comments and feedback from all interested parties no later than 31 May 2024.
